"Mammut" - Via Ferrata

A via ferrata is a climbing route secured with iron ladders, iron pins, clamps and ropes.

The iron placed in a via ferrata serves on the one hand for locomotion (additional grips and kicks) and on the other hand for self-belay with a so-called via ferrata set.

The Italian term for via ferrata literally means iron path and describes the character of modern via ferrata very well.
